Neko Box | April Box: Theme Edo | Unboxing & Review

neko


*Neko Box does not sponsor this post, I paid for the Box & everything I say is my honest opinion*


Hello lovely people! Today I have another Unboxing / Review for you: The April Box “Edo” from NekoBox. I reviewed their March Box a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely loved it, which is why I had to get this one as well.

Neko Box is a monthly subscription Box from Japan that delivers ceramics, dishware, stationery, art prints and other awesome things to your doorstep. The items that are being send to you are chosen based on a monthly theme. The March theme was “Hanami”, which is a Cherry Blossom Party, so we received items that were inspired by Cherry Blossoms. This month theme was “Edo”. Edo is the old name for Tokyo and it was also the period between 1603 and 1868 in the history of Japan. So patterns in this Box were inspired by this time period and the KAWA Zine focused on Tokyo.

But now, let’s get down to the facts:

  • Neko Box is based in Japan but ships worldwide
  • It’s a monthly box
  • A Box costs $34.99 (but you get $5 off your first order with the Code 5OFF!)
  • Shipping costs between $10 – $18 depending on where you live and if you choose normal or express shipping
  • It comes with a tracking number!
  • My Box was shipped on April 13 with express shipping & arrived on April 19
  • On the website you can only pay with Credit / Debit Card, but you can email them & then they send you a paypal invoice!

“It Ends With Us” Book Review | Spoiler Free

Aloha everyone!

Today I’ve got a book review for you, which I haven’t done in a while. But last night I finally read “IT ENDS WITH US” by Colleen Hoover.

SOMETIMES THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU IS THE ONE WHO HURTS YOU THE MOST

“It Ends With Us” by Colleen Hoover

iewu

Summary:  “Lily never really had it easy in life, but that doesn’t stop her from working for the life she wants and deserves. She comes from a small town in Maine but moved to Boston after graduating College and starts her own business. One night she meets Ryle Kincaid a stubborn, slightly arrogant but sensitive neurosurgeon who has a soft spot for Lily and everything suddenly seems too good to be true. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing.
As her new relationship starts overwhelming her, Atlas Corrigan comes back to her mind – her first true love. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.”

This novel contains graphic scenes and very sensitive subject matter. It’s a very personal novel from the Author Colleen Hoover


There won’t be any spoilers in this review, because you just have to read it yourself!

*Neko Box does not sponsor this post, I paid for the Box & everything I say is my own honest opinion*


Hello dear earthlings! Today I am reviewing the March Box “Hanami” from “Neko Box”.

Neko Box is a monthly subscription Box coming all the way from Japan! The owners of Neko Box are Carly and Rob, they are from New Zealand but now live in Japan. Each month they send you Japanese-made ceramics (like plates, sake cups), stationery, art prints and other cool things! The goodies are chosen based on the monthly theme. The March theme was “Hanami”, Hanami is a Cherry Blossom Party, so this month the items were inspired by Cherry Blossoms. Previous Themes were “Mount Fuji” and a “New beginnings Box”. April’s theme is “Edo”, which is the old name for “Tokyo”. The Hanami Box was my first one (but definitely not my last one)! But now let’s get to the facts.

Book Review – Broken Samurai

Broken Samurai – Al Carlisle

51dqu0pilal

*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

I was very excited when I got the chance to read this book. I hadn’t read any non-fictional books in a long time, and the fact that „Broken Samurai“ was about a man who suffered from PTSD after serving in the Vietnam war really interested me. I had also heard the name „Al Carlisle“ before, so I jumped right into reading this book.

No and Me by Delphine de Vigan

1. [….] “Geneviève has gone back to her counter. She gave us a little wave before she went. I must have looked miles away because Lucas moved his hand gently in front of my face.

He brought his mouth to mine and I felt hit lips first, then his tongue and our saliva mixed. And then I understood that of all the questions I ask myself, the one about which direction your tongue goes in isn’t the most important.”

Bloguest 2016 | Bookstores I want to visit – DeliriousDreams

Miserable and Magical

Hello, dear people of the Internet! My name is Kira, I blog under the name  DeliriousDreams and I am very excited to be a part of Bloguest again this year!! 🙂

My topic is “Bookstores I want to visit”. That topic caught my eye very quickly. I think that is such an interesting thing to talk about since there are so many beautiful and magical bookstores in this world.  I will introduce to the ones I would like to visit one day. It was very hard for me to reduce my selection to 5 Bookstores. I initially had more than 20 picked out, I will mention the other Bookstores at the end of the post. I also tried to pick out bookstores around the world, so that you all might find one near you.

To me, a bookstore is a magical place. A place where I can just “get lost”…

*Illumicrate does not sponsor this post, I paid for the Box & everything I say is my own honest opinion*


Hey Guys!

Before I start this blog post, I would like to mention that Illumicrate seriously does not sponsor this post. Because it might sound like they do, but they don’t. I swear this is my honest opinion.

So, if you follow my blog you may have seen my post about the February Illumicrate Box, which I fell deeply in love with. So obviously I was extremely excited for the May Box. But before I get to the Box, I would like to introduce Illumicrate to those of you, who haven’t heard of Illumicrate yet.


Illumicrate is a quarterly book subscription Box, meaning it ships out 4 times a year              (November, February, May & August) and Illumicrate is based in the UK!
